has an appointment with his doctor tomorrow to discuss a possible dosage increase for his Klonopin
, but the last time he was there he wanted SWIM to have blood work taken just because its been a long time (nothing to do with the benzos
). SWIM is a regular intravenous drug
user and besides the obvious worries about track marks, SWIM is wondering if the following drugs
, xanex & valium
would show up in the blood work. SWIM isn't sure if these substances would just automatically show up in the blood work or if the doctor would have to run a specific/separate blood test in order for these to show up. The point is that SWIM does not want his doctor to find out about the drug use in general, but especially IV usage because that would lead to his doctor taking away his Klonopin prescription (which he needs for his anxiety) and would prevent him from prescribing any opiates
for pain in the event of a serious injury. SWIM needs to get this blood work done within the next 2 weeks regardless for his Suboxone
doctor (they don't know about eachother
) but he's afraid that his primary doctor will want it sooner than that.
The main question is, will these substances show up in a normal blood work exam? And if so, how long does it take for these substances to be clear from the blood stream?
